MFA statement on insulting of Polish Ambassador to Israel
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses concern at the physical and verbal attack on Polish Ambassador to Israel Marek Magierowski, which took place on Tuesday, 14 May, in front of the Polish diplomatic mission in Tel Aviv. Any such acts directed against diplomatic agents deserve unequivocal condemnation.
As a result of the situation, Israeli Ambassador to Poland Anna Azari was summoned to the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. She deplored the incident and declared the assistance of the Israeli authorities in fully establishing its circumstances.
Recognising the prompt action of the Israeli police in apprehending the perpetrator, we call on the Israeli authorities to ensure that Polish diplomats are properly and effectively protected in Israel in the similar way as is the case with Israeli diplomats in Poland.
We hope that the Israeli authorities will make every effort to bring those responsible to justice and to prevent similar incidents targeting Polish diplomats from happening again.
